Top News

German football star Massoud Ozil has posted an official statement on Twitter and Stuttgart today, asking his followers to send videos of their personal experiences and explain their suffering, whether because of racism or mental health problems.

Ozil explains that when he thinks of the things he cares about in his life as well as being a good footballer, he remembers the values ​​of respect, honesty and integrity. "I hear from friends and read through the media on reports about racism and discrimination, Those prejudices at many different levels. "

The Turkish-German player intends to use his personal accounts on social media as a platform for his followers to publish their stories to "advocate what is true when watching or hearing abuse or discrimination."

Ozil, who was crowned with the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, announced in 2018 that he would retire from international football for racial discrimination and felt a scapegoat for the modest performance of the defending champions and the early exit of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

This is not the first time that the 30-year-old has been involved in charitable work. During his marriage to Miss Turkey, Amina Gulchi, he announced his intention to carry out 1,000 pediatric surgeries through the Big Show Foundation for Pediatric Surgery.

Ozil also donated to the Turkish Red Cross, which is responsible for providing food to 16,000 homeless people, including Syrian refugees, according to the Turkish Football website.
